I'm building a new computer, and I have some questions regarding the combination of parts I've put together. My first question is should I expect any bottle necking with this setup. After I list the main jist of it, I'm going to be requesting suggestions on the video card, so the bottle necking may/may not differ from card to card.
The first three listed products are going to be built from www.monarchcomputers.com
This website is a good one, and I get a good amount of free stuff (including hl2) when I purchase an Athlon 64 combo. I'm buying from here since I'll get the most for the least amount of money. The three components I'm building on that website are priced equally on www.newegg.com
so I'm posting links to them there.
Best Buy is running a sale on 80gig WD 7200
Buying a case here in town, mid tower atx
I'm going to list a few cards. My video performance requirements are solely to be able to run all of the new end games such as hl2, doom3, quake4 at good frames on low details
The last card listed has pretty good reviews written about it. It beats a 6600gt 128 in gameplay, and it can be easily overclocked, quite well for that matter. Again, I only need to be able to get consistently high (100) frames on low details, probably with aa/af if it's playable like that. Any comments or suggestions are welcome.
